Student Research


researchSenior students in the Radiographic Science Program at Idaho State University have the opportunity to perform research by way of a creative project that allows a greater in-depth understanding of a particular area of study.  This process is imperative as it hones the necessary written communication skills which are needed to compete in the job market today.  Undergraduate research is defined by faculty in this program as any type of creative effort that is embarked upon by an undergraduate that improves the knowledge of the student. Additionally, it leads to new intellectual understanding and the creation of new works which inevitably adds to the wealth of the discipline.
